I want to share a beautiful affirmation with you today. This is an affirmation you can carry with you every day.
This affirmation is: All is well.
I remember early on in my spiritual journey I began following Louise Hay. I love the simplicity of her affirmations. I would use this affirmation, “All is well,” all day long. Whenever things would get funky, or things would go wrong, I would just remind myself that all is well. And I would tune back in to this stream of well-being that I was just starting to trust at the time. The more I began to trust that stream, that well-being that is within in me, around me, supporting me, the more greatness I began to experience in my life.
Abraham-Hicks have a beautiful way of putting it. They say, “There is only a stream of well-being that flows. You can allow it, or resist it, but it flows just the same.” Isn’t that so good? There is only a stream of well-being, that’s it. And you’re either allowing it or you’re resisting it, but it’s flowing just the same.
What it’s like to allow the stream of well-being
How are you allowing that stream of well-being? First, let’s consider that you are here reading this blog post right now. Maybe you subscribe to my newsletter or maybe you landed here some other way. Regardless, you’re here and you’re reading this. Take a moment to honor yourself right now. Because just reading these words means that you are willing to tune in to this stream of well-being.
There is a line from A Course in Miracles that reminds me of this affirmation, this knowing that all is well. The Course says, “If you knew who walked beside you on the path that you have chosen, fear would be impossible.”
When I get in tune with these beliefs, the coolest, wildest, most magnificent things begin to occur. I get into what Abraham-Hicks have called the vortex. I get into the stream. I get into the flow. I get vibrate with the cosmos, as the Kundalini master Yogi Bhajan would say.
Vibrating with the cosmos, and being in that energy field, creates so much wonder, magnificence, grace and beauty. We have these opportunities when we are in that force field to just be in the joy of what it is to be alive.
We often resist the stream of well-being
We often resist this flow. We all suffer and we all have traumas. We all have ruins and we all have stories. We all have limitations and we all have belief systems that we’ve been burying, and avoiding, and not wanting to deal with. And so in that resistance we are out of alignment with the stream of well-being. We avoid the connection to that love, peace and grace.
In that disconnect, we feel like we’re out of alignment with joy and with the miraculous. We feel like we’re not manifesting what we want. But we also feel a sense of guilt because deep down we know that we have disconnected from our greatest source of power. We know that we have disconnected from our truth, which is love.
When we get into the flow, we receive guidance
However, in those moments when we are in the stream of well-being, when we are listening to our intuition — those are the moments when we really, really are in the know. We feel joy because we are genuinely connected to the truth of who we are. That joy is what we need to aim for.
When we’re in the joy of who we are, we start to receive guidance. We start to be hooked up in ways that we never thought were possible. It’s our job to listen to that guidance. That guidance comes from deceased guides, teachers and ancestors. It comes from spirit guides and angels. It comes from the God of your own understanding. It comes from the Universe.
This loving guidance is available to each and every one of us all the time.
I want to give you some steps for getting into the stream of well-being. Follow these steps to feel your connection to the Universe, so that you can know that all is well.
Steps to get into the stream of well-being
Step 1: Create a desire list
The first step is to create a desire list. This is quite simple. You’re going to make a list of what you want and why you want it. This will be a list that makes you feel good!
When you make a list of what you want, you start to feel that there is enough to go around. You start to feel like you’re in an infinite field of possibility and abundance. Making this list will let you start to feel like you can be unapologetic about what you want. As a result your energy will shift. You’ll start to get into the feeling that all is well.
This is a practice that we have to do in order to reprogram our thinking. Because all we’re doing all day long is thinking about what we don’t want and how we can avoid it or prevent it. When we do this, ultimately what we’re doing is manifesting more of what we don’t want!
You can make this list every single day for the next month. Make the list every morning as part of your morning ritual.
I want to feel supported because the more supported I am, the more I can create.
I want to feel creative because the more creative I am, the more I can give to others.
Be unapologetic about your desires
You can be unapologetic. Whatever you want, put it out there. Just make sure that what you’re asking for is in alignment with what is of the highest good. You don’t want to ask for things that could harm other people. You don’t want to say, “I want so and so to suffer.”
As justified as you may feel in your anger toward another person, I assure you that this wish is not going to raise your vibration. If you do feel this way toward someone, that’s okay. Gently witness your judgment. And practice the Judgment Detox on your judgment toward that person instead.
When you practice this desire list, suspend your disbelief. Just let yourself be in the wonder of what you want. Be in the excitement and the enthusiasm of what you want to create, experience and receive.
Don’t be afraid to ask for what you want. Trust that there is enough to go around. Get yourself into the infinite field of possibility and abundance. Make sure that while you’re writing, you’re writing about things that make you feel good! You can share your list in the comments if you feel called to do so.
Step 2: Focus on how you want to feel
Start to focus on how you want to feel in your life. I’ll give you an example. A while ago I really wanted to feel more supported by people in my life and by the Universe. During this time I didn’t believe that I could be supported. Believing that I wasn’t supported took me out of that stream of well-being.
I knew that I had to start reaching for a higher-vibe feeling. I didn’t know how to get to that feeling, but I knew what I wanted it to sound like. So I had an affirmation. My affirmation was, “Everything is happening around me and I am truly taken care of.” And, man, did that feel good. It felt so good to say that out loud.
I knew that in order to get into that feeling, I had to lean on experiences that I’ve in my life where that affirmation resonated. There was one area of my life where I felt it. It was the experience I had with my event planner, Anette.
Anette always makes me feel supported. So I started to cultivate that feeling of Anette. In my meditation I would daydream about being onstage and knowing that Anette had everything taken care of.
As I dwelled in that feeling, my affirmation began to come to life in my body. I started to feel that affirmation. “Everything is happening around me and I am truly taken care of.”
Over the next six months, my affirmation became my reality. I hired people who supported me. I was led to opportunities to feel guided, supported and protected. And today I am standing in the truth, that everything is happening around me and I am truly taken care of. All is well.

How to cultivate the feeling that all is well
You can use the affirmation “All is well,” or you can make up one like I did. Then call on one corner of your life you feel that way or have felt that way.
If what you want isn’t something you personally have experienced, you can call on people you know who have it. For example, if you want to cultivate more love in your life and you don’t have any frame of reference, you can call on a relationship that you admire.
Feel the feeling that comes up for you when you think about experiencing it. Be in that energy of your vision. Dwell in the joy of what it is that you are creating. It’s safe to feel it fully. And when you’re not in alignment with that feeling, repeat the affirmation “All is well,” or repeat the affirmation that you create for yourself.
Step 3: Appreciate what you have
I teach appreciation all the time and I’m going to teach it again. Read that past post for a deep dive into appreciation and how to play the appreciation game.
When you are in a state of appreciation, you are in a state of perfect allowing. When you appreciate, you aren’t resisting. You’re not caught up in some negative story. Instead, you’re in the story of what is flowing.
In addition to the journaling exercise I outline in my blog post on appreciation, there’s more you can do. Start to tell people why you appreciate them. Say it out loud to them. Friends, romantic partners, coworkers, family, everyone.
If you’re a parent, do this with your children. Go back and forth saying, “I appreciate you for X.” They’ll get it so into it. It’s a magnificent gift to give them.
Do this with your romantic partner. Tell them how much you appreciate them. This will completely shift the energy in your relationship, especially if you’ve been focused on all their perceived faults. What if instead of looking for faults, we were looking for miracles?
When you practice these steps, you can begin to know that there is only a stream of well-being that flows. You can allow it or resist it, but it flows just the same. Trust this, know this, accept this, and start to own this affirmation in your life. All is well.
How to stay in the stream of well-being
When you practice these steps faithfully, you will start to feel really good. You might feel so good that you think you don’t really need this practice anymore.
I’ve seen this happen many times. I’ve done it myself. Once life gets good, we fall off the spiritual wagon. And eventually that good-feeling momentum fades, and we’re back to square one.
I want you to be able to stay in the flow of well-being and live a spiritual life! That’s why I created my Miracle Membership.
